I can't believe I spaced it this long.

I think we need to change the current ARM MACHINE_ARCH from "arm"
to "armel".  This is because we will soon be supporting a big-endian
ARM platform (or two or three), and will thus need an "armeb".

Any objections?  If not, I can do the change quite quickly.

Again, sorry for bringing this up at the last minute, but if we're
going to do it, we should do it before we ship 1.6.
